Not worth the decent food & atmosphere. $8 bruschetta--or $2 each? Seriously? I had a burger; my wife a salad. We each had a beer. $50+. It wasn't that tasty. If you have to add salt to your burger, something's wrong.

We thought we would stay local and eat so we headed over to Waldo Peppers. Now when you live right on Lake Erie, you expect fresh perch, especially at $19.00 for 3 fillets, french fries and a salad. Boy was I wrong. My meal arrived with tiny fillets of perch? (about the size of pond sunfish) that should have been... More

the staff is great, the atmosphere is great, but if your just going to cook a steak your way don't ask me how I want it. this used to be my favorite place in that area. but I have such bad luck in restaurants I don't give second chances.

Tired after a long travel day and wanted a place that was close to our hotel (Holiday Inn Express). The menu selection is varied and should please all appetites. The Lake Erie perch sandwich was really good but think I could have skipped the bun and just savored the fresh fish. Good and fast service.

We ate Waldo Peppers buffet food at the Camp Perry Clubhouse last week. IT WAS A CATERED EVENT AT ANOTHER LOCATION for about 100 people. Waldo Peppers brought the food to the clubhouse and served it in a buffet line. The chicken was good, the green beans were good and the potatoes were good. I wasn't interested in cupcake and...
